MAN recently launched its new TG range of trucks for customers in South Africa. The new vehicles reflect MAN’s customer centric approach and are designed to meet their operational requirements – for today and for the future.

The new TG range represents MAN Automotive South Africa as a provider of sustainable transport solutions. The competence of the engineering team at MAN is clearly underlined in these vehicles. The trucks retain their characteristics of being robust, reliable and efficient but also present new features that are class defining.

The most visible changes are in the cabs of the new range – both from the outside and inside. The new aerodynamics results in efficient operations in our trucks. On the inside, the range comes with features that are aimed to provide the best-in-class comfort to drivers. A well-rested driver can drive with even more safety and deliver more efficiently than before. These vehicles are capable of highest levels of reliability and efficiency for diverse applications & operating conditions.

Joerg Mommertz, Senior Vice President, Head of Centre Middle East, Africa and Latin America, MAN Truck & Bus SE, said, “At MAN, we are always working towards bringing newer products and technologies based on customer feedback. The new TG range is an example of trucks that can meet the customer needs of today as well as over the coming years. Our objective is to deliver the most attractive value proposition, which includes the product, after sales support, digital solutions and customised training. In other words, win solution for customers.”

 Oliver Klein, Managing Director, MAN Automotive (South Africa), said, “The launch of new MAN TG range is an exciting moment for the entire team in South Africa. Over the years, MAN has established itself as a strong player in the truck business. We have been voted as the best performing OEM in the customer satisfaction index. Going forward, we will continue to make MAN the preferred choice for customers in Southern Africa.”

With the introduction of the new Truck Generation, MAN also reaffirms its commitment of “Simplifying Business” for its customers. The company aims to do so with effective after sales for service, parts and business advisory, besides their reliable & efficient products.

The new MAN Truck Generation offers everything that customers and drivers have always appreciated and expected from their MAN – only even better. This is because it combines proven virtues with absolutely pioneering developments to relieve hauliers and drivers and simplify their daily work despite increasingly complex conditions.

 The new MAN TGX is the International Truck of the Year 2021

The flagship TGX model is the perfect drivers’ workplace not only due to its superior driving comfort. This model comes with a clearly arranged, fully dig- ital display instrument cluster as well as intuitively operable driving

multimedia functions. It also has a new, generously adjustable multi-function steering wheel with an innovative, distraction-free rotary push button control function of the MAN SmartSelect system. All of these features impressed the jury of the International Truck of the Year, who were just as pos itive about the living conditions in the new driver’s cab as with the high level of safety. Last but not least, the new MAN TGX made a particularly trend-set ting impression thanks to the high degree of connectivity provided by its electronic architecture, a first of its kind, in the Commercial Vehicle- sector.
